I tried most bars during my ten day trip and this place tops them all. I ended up being drawn back to this bar. Great music which can be heard from outside or enjoyed inside. Great service and met lots of great people.

I spent a week in Tavira and three nights at the Black Anchor. Wonderful musician called Gary had us dancing all night. The bar staff were friendly and prompt with service. Drinks were reasonable and draft was crisp. I will return!!
